N3uron 1.21.4: BACnet and SNMP new Modules, MQTT InfluxDB Payload, Sparkplug B V3.0, and more

N3uron 1.21.4: Introducing BACnet and SNMP Client Modules, Pre-Configured MQTT InfluxDB Payload, Sparkplug B V3.0 Compatibility, Enhanced Derived Tags, and Improved Browsing Experience.

New year, new features! The release pipeline is to add even more functionality and features to N3uron than it did last year. The N3uron 1.21.4 deliverables indicate that it is unequivocally making progress in the right direction.

N3uron 1.21.4 brings that new-year cheer with the new MQTT InfluxDB Payload, the new Sparkplug version 3.0 and new modules such as BACnet Client and SNMP Client, as well as important updates to the Derived Tags, Sparkplug Client, MQTT Client, OPC UA Client modules and a lot more.

MQTT InfluxDB Payload

In N3uron 1.21.4, we added the InfluxDB pre-configured payload. This new feature is designed to permit direct connection to InfluxDB Cloud using its MQTT Native Collector.

This InfluxDB Payload mode allows leveraging InfluxDB efficiencies to historize large volumes of data.

Sparkplug B version 3.0

N3uron is now compatible with Sparkplug 3.0. This update will allow N3uron users to use the latest version of the data communication protocol, which will significantly improve resiliency and data transfer efficiency in high-speed IoT systems.

The compatibility of N3uron with Sparkplug 3.0 will also enable better metadata management and greater interoperability with other software systems, allowing for easier integration of devices and systems from different providers in industrial assets.

Furthermore, Sparkplug 3.0 introduces an additional layer of security by utilizing authentication and data encryption to protect industrial automation systems against cyber threats. This means that N3uron users can be assured that their data will be protected while being transmitted through communication systems.

In addition to expanding its functionalities with the latest update, the N3uron Sparkplug Client Module has also received approval from the Eclipse Foundation, affirming its compatibility with the Sparkplug protocol.

BACnet Client New Module

The BACnet Client module for N3uron is a robust tool that facilitates effortless connectivity to BACnet-compatible devices, providing real-time data monitoring and control capabilities. With this module, users can integrate their devices with a broad spectrum of software applications, including building and energy management systems, SCADA, as well as enterprise business intelligence solutions or cloud services. As always, connections, devices and tags are unlimited.

SNMP Client New Module

The N3uron SNMP Client module allows data to be exchanged with SNMP V1 and V2c agents, making it available to other systems through any of the Data Delivery modules implemented within the N3uron platform, such as MQTT, OPC UA Server, Sparkplug, REST API Server, Notifier, etc.

By seamlessly integrating the monitoring and analysis of Managed and Unmanaged SNMP-supported Ethernet network devices, the SNMP Client module enables HMI, SCADA, Historian, or MES software packages to incorporate the status of routers, switches, PCs/servers, printers, UPS devices, and other Managed or Unmanaged devices directly into their management systems. Network administrators and automation professionals can now reliably manage their devices through their existing management systems.

Major Derived Tags Module Update

Our team has been working hard to enhance the functionality and performance of this module, and we believe that these new features will greatly benefit our users.

One of the significant improvements in this version is the higher performance of the Derived Tags module. This will allow users to process a larger volume of data in less time, resulting in faster and more efficient operations at the edge.

In addition to the performance improvements, we have also added several new tag modes to the module. All tag modes are shown in the following table:

Aggregated Tag:

Built-in tag aggregation functions over a specific time interval (maximum, first, last value, etc.).

Expression Tag:

Lets users use JavaScript expressions to perform calculations and logic based on the values of other tags for complex analysis closer to data source.

Alias Tag (new):

Useful for creating a replica of another tag without any coding.

Redundant Tag (new):

Used to create tags with several inputs acting as redundant sources.

Node Tag (new):

Intended to provide information about the node, links and modules.

We have also added persistence execution scans, which enable the module to retain data across scans. In addition, we have included Cron expressions with timezone support to configure the trigger of an expression tag or to define the calculation period of an Aggregated tag. The new Delta aggregation method has also been added to obtain the difference between the last and first values in the interval if both have good quality.

Lastly, the $.currentValue object value can be overwritten within an Expression tag and the $.variable object has been added as well. This object contains user-defined variables.

We are confident that these new improvements will provide our users with a more powerful and user-friendly Derived Tags module, enabling them to manage, process and normalize their data more efficiently and accurately.

Browsing Just Got Better

For many users, the browsing functionality is a strong feature of N3uron. With the help of some key feedback from the N3uron community, N3uron 1.21.4 delivers significant improvements to browsing in some modules such as OPC UA Client and OPC UA Server.

The new browsing improvements in the N3uron software permit users to efficiently explore the data and services available on their corresponding networks, which means users can quickly find and access the information they need.

Regarding the OPC UA Client module, OPC UA server discovery allows users to discover endpoint addresses, attributes such as Application name,Type and URL, etc.

Concerning the OPC UA tag browser, now it’s possible to see the node attributes such as the BrowseName, the Description, the DataType, the Value, etc.
